Alhaji Amidu Mahama, Upper East Regional Commander has called on politicians to be circumspect in their actions and avoid the use of insulting language that could result in mayhem.
He said politics was brain game and those involved should explain their ideas and manifestoes to the electorate to enable them to vote for the right candidates.
Alhaji Mahama was responding to a question from members of the media on preparations made so far by the police to ensure peaceful campaigns towards Election 2008 in the region, at a soiree organized by the regional police command in Bolgatanga.
He advised politicians not to consider politics as a do and die affair.
The Regional Police Commander said the police would educate people in the Zongo communities, including Bawku on the essence of peace since they were vulnerable to political confrontation.
The Regional Crime Officer, Police Superintendent Emmanuel Adufati, urged members of the public to assist security agencies in arresting traffic offenders.
Some officials of radio stations in the region pledged to provide free air time for the police to educate the public in connection with the forthcoming elections and motor traffic regulations.
